Gutierrez happy to be in the good books at last

Hopes that Nico Hülkenberg would be able to deliver those points after he ran as high as seventh place in the mid-section of the 66-lap race were dashed when he was involved in a pit lane collision with Toro Rosso's Jean-Eric Vergne. While Vergne's car eventually retired as a consequence, Hülkenberg limped home but was mired in 15th position thanks to a stop-go penalty handed to the team for an unsafe pit release into the Toro Rosso car's path.

"We knew that it would be a difficult race today. The start went well and, until the incident in the pit lane, we looked quite good," said Hülkenberg. "We planned for a three stop, but then had to convert to a four stop. But then we had the incident, which ruined the race for us.

"Obviously the timing wasn't quite right, but we are a team, so we have to look into it and make sure it does not happen again," he added.

Last year Sauber was in contention with both drivers scoring a record number of points (126 points total ). Sauber had the potential to achieve near "A" team status. This year Sauber is barely ahead of the "D" teams along with Williams. Obviously mexican sponsorship $$$$ in conjunction with a poor driver choice has put Sauber in a deep hole. Good luck getting out!!!!
